Top 5 Benefits Of Using A Professional Pet Sitter

The day for your long awaited journey is fast approaching. But, instead of being overcome with excitement, you feel overwhelmed with anxiety and dread. Who is going to provide your pets with the same high quality care to which they are accustomed when you are gone? Will boarding them prove too stressful? Can you really trust your neighbors or family members to check in with your pets as often as they require?

Revel in the excitement of an upcoming trip by hiring a professional pet sitter to care for your pets while you are away. Here are the top five benefits of using a professional pet sitter:

Enjoy a stress-free experience.

A professional pet sitter allows both you and your pets to enjoy a stress free experience. You don’t have to worry about boarding your pets and the stress they’ll endure traveling to and from the kennel; the stress of getting used to a new place; and the stress of coming home again. You also don’t have to fret over whether or not neighbors or loved ones will be able to keep their promise to care for your pets every day.

Ensure your pets are cared for the way YOU want.

A professional pet sitter will speak with you prior to your first scheduled visit to determine how you want your pets cared for: You are in charge. You tell the pet sitter what and how much to feed your pets; what toys to rotate; and how to give them their much-anticipated treats.

Schedule as few, or as many, visits as you need each day.

How many times a professional pet sitter visits your pets depends solely on your and your pets’ needs. If you have pets who require medication at specific times each day, you may schedule several visits each day. Some professional pet sitting services also offer overnight pet sits for those pets who may suffer from separation anxiety, who need special care, or who just feel more secure having someone at their home at night.

Rest assured your home is secure.

In addition to caring for your pets, a professional pet sitter is dedicated to ensuring both they and your home are secure. As a result, your pet sitter may turn lights on and off, bring in the mail, take out and bring in the trash cans on garbage day, and so on. You also don’t have to worry about your plants dying: Just ask your pet sitter to water them each day.

Receive frequent updates.

Being apart is probably just as hard on you as it is on your pets. Savor your time away, knowing that your professional pet sitter will provide you with frequent updates as to how your pets are doing each day. You may receive an email or a text with photographs, depending on your professional pet sitter’s regular procedures.
